For the longest time I have admired Tania's tree pieces..she has been one of the first people I know to use these tree images in a beautiful poetic manner and captures the light behind the trees and the magic of the forest. I remember first setting my eyes on her beautiful work in 2007, and was so pleased when she wanted to do a trade with me for my work too.
She has only grown even better in doing what she does, fine tuning the 'image transfer process' using her own photographs and working large. The image transfers she works on is larger than the 'standard' print size of 11 x 17. She has demonstrated this technique at the Fifth International Encaustic Conference this year, 2011 and will be turning this great demo into a full blown day long hands on class at Supria's Designs, on Sat. Oct. 22nd. For more on Tania Wycherley and her work visit her website.
